Sunday Morning Show Quotes – 8.17.14

Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) on “This Week” on the situation in Ferguson: ”The overmilitarization, the IMRAPs rolling in, the guns pointed at kids in the street, all of that I think instead of ratcheting down, brought emotion up. And that’s why I made the unique decision to bring in our highway patrol, to have a local leader, Captain Johnson from that community in that community, which he has been, and to put a much different face on law enforcement there, and I think it has paid off while respecting and allowing the appropriate first amendment rights for people to grieve and to speak.”

Gov. Nixon on “Meet the Press” on surveillance video being released: “Yeah. Everyone can rest well assured that we’ve had very serious discussions about that action and how much we felt that it was not the right way to handle the victim’s family, which I had a chance to speak with. They were deeply troubled. And when you see your son gunned down in the street and then you see a police chief begin an attempt to attack his character…That’s just not the way to operate. And we’ve made that clear to everyone. And our hope and expectation is that now that our folks are in charge of security, and we have these dual investigations going on, that, that bump is behind us, hopefully.” Read more

Police Officer in Ferguson: ‘You get that light off or you’re getting shelled with this!’

In Ferguson, Mo., at the site of the shooting death of unarmed teen Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, members of the media covering demonstrations in the St. Louis suburb continue to be threated by law enforcement.

Last Wednesday, The Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery and HuffPost’s Ryan Reilly were arrested inside a McDonald’s and later released. The same night, tear gas was shot at an Al Jazeera America crew in Ferguson.

“Get the fuck out of here! You get that light off or you’re getting shelled with this!” a police officer screamed at Mustafa Hussein, who was recording a livestream for Argus Radio’s digital platform.

Hillary Clinton Asks Frank Underwood for Bill Clinton Birthday Wishes

Again, Hillary Clinton misses the mark of actually being funny in a recent video posted to the Clinton Foundation’s YouTube channel of a “prank call” the former Secretary of State receives from “House of Cards’ ” Frank Underwood. In it, Spacey imitates former President Bill Clinton, and in closing, the former First Lady encourages Underwood to sign Bill’s online and public 68th birthday card.

WATCH, and comment if you actually laughed.

Andrea Mitchell Looks Back at David Gregory’s Time as MTP Host and with NBC News

In tribute to ousted “Meet the Press” moderator, yesterday’s host Andrea Mitchell looked back on David Gregory‘s six years hosting MTP and 20 years with NBC News.

“Meet the Press makes a lot of history, and a great deal of it was with David at the helm since he started in December 2008, said Mitchell. “In twenty years with NBC News, David has done it all. The OJ Simpson trial, Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing, TODAY show guest hosting. And, when the cameras weren’t rolling, dead on imitations of everyone from Presidents of the United States to Tom Brokaw. To all the years, David has been true to the traditions of the program and NBC News.”
